Contract Law

Practice, Interpretation, and Enforcement (First Edition)
Willy E. Rice

Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-62131-241-3, 890 pages


Contract Law: Practice, Interpretation, and Enforcement teaches common-law principles regarding the formation, interpretation and enforcement of contracts and stand-alone promises. More specifically, the casebook discusses theories of recovery, and explains the practicable application of those theories in legal complaints and answers. In addition, the casebook covers Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code, which governs the formation and enforcement of sale-of-goods contracts.

Most legal casebooks generally focus on the theoretical. Contract Law, however, covers legal and statutory theories as well as civil procedures, and the practice of law in everyday life. Therefore, the casebook gives first-year students valuable skills that they can use throughout their legal careers.

Contract Law is literally two textbooks in one and can be used for a full year of instruction. Therefore, it is ideal for law school courses in contracts. And, to re-emphasize, the text teaches students how to construct plaintiffs’ complaints, and defendants’ answers using common-law and UCC-related theories of recovery and affirmative defenses.
